INFORMATION FOR ALL!
The DENR-XI through its Regional Strategic Communication and Initiatives Group (RSCIG) took advantage of the gathering of clients and stakeholders for 2-day conduct of DENR’s Multistakeholder Forum-Mindanao by disseminating information and distributing campaign materials. With pro-gender approach, the men and women of RSCIG catered to everyone equally, tirelessly attended to the inquiries of visitors, and dauntlessly explained the agency’s programs, projects and initiatives.
Most of the clients who went to visit the exhibit were women of different professions, some of which even chose to stay longer to get to know DENR-XI’s initiatives in terms of conserving and protecting its Protected Areas and biodiversity. Truly, women nowadays are getting more involved in safekeeping the environment and are empowered to fight against environmental degradation.
Being a National Government Agency, DENR continuously promote gender equality and women empowerment through mainstreaming Gender and Development in its Programs, Projects and activities. In DENR XI, Assistant Regional Executive Director for Management Ma. Mercedes V. Dumagan is the Chairperson of the Regional GAD focal point system.
